There are some compelling features of Blu ray recorders. They allow the users to have random access to a track that is being played. The user can jump to any position on the track. There is also the option whereby the user can quickly browse and watch recorded programs. One can also change the order in which recorded programs are stored on the device. One of the key features of this disc is that it can simultaneously be used to record as well as play videos. While doing this, the disc automatically finds an empty space so as to avoid recording over already stored programs.

The disc can also be used to run online Blu Ray Movies too where one gets the opportunity to store her or his favourite movies online while also simultaneously watching it on the internet. Nowadays, these discs are being used by high definition televisions (HDTV) for their improved picture quality. They also have the capability to record surround sound.
